Pros: dual band, host of admin options
Cons: still want more range
Other Thoughts: I've had this router for 6+ months now and have not had any problems using it. Setup out of the box was easy and I had my network up and running in less than 30 minutes. The admin tools are great and give you a good look at what is going on with your network once you get it setup. You can see all of your connected devices, the band that they are on, and how strong the signal is between them. A nice feature is the GUEST setting that allows you to set up temp passwords for people visiting without actually having to give up your main passwords.
Router itself has 4 LAN wired gigabit ethernet ports in the back which makes it nice to use as a hub for the rest of the house. Current setup, we have this in a network box on the 3rd floor. It streams wireless throughout and sends wired signal to four separate room. The wireless signal does drop off with distance though which is not a knock on the router given that the signal is traveling through walls, floors, etc. Just be aware in case you have a big place. I ended up purchasing a replacement antenna which kicked the signal up from the included 3dbi-5dbi antenna to 9 dbi. Signal strength did improve so replacement worked well for me.

Other Thoughts: Not as loud as I thought it was going to be based upon other posts here; hooked it up to a Dlink NAS with ease, no cables needed.READ FULL REVIEW
